A lovely thrift shop find

I occasionally enjoy a walk around my local thrift store. Whether I’m hunting doing it myself-stuff or I’m just there for a random stroll, it’s one of the ways I like to have some me time!

Red on the lips + red on the hips

I so swear that I’m not listening to Taylor Swifts “Red” while typing this post, I’m really not. That would be embarrassing. Also, all of these are lies. BUT LOVING HIM WAS REEEED. RE-HE-HE-HED. Today I’m all about red – from my lips to my outfit, from even the juice I picked while shopping earlier to the song I’m listening to.
